Results Kastania Hillclimb 2017

The Kastania Hillclimb was the final round of the Greek Hillclimb Championship. The race also counted towards the Greek Hillclimb Cup North. Marios Iliopoulos was already certain of the Group FS title and did not compete in Kastania. The new Group E champion Georgios Kechagias had the same idea and was also not present. There was a small scare on Sunday when Spyros Mavraidakos went over the edge but his Renault Clio was caught in the bushes some 10 metres below. After a checkup it was clear that he had no injuries and the race continued.

By far the fastest driver in Kastania was Konstantinos Lazaridis. Over two runs he was more than 13 seconds quicker than the next fastest driver. Panagiotis Kyrkos could not challenge the leader but he did win Group A. The Mitsubishi Lancer pilot had of course a power advantage over his closest rivals Alexandros Tsionkas and Christos Lappas who both competed in Peugeot 106 Maxis. Konstantinos Kakos had no real rivals in Group N. He won the group and the championship. Ioannis Konstantinidis extended his points lead in the Cup, although he was beaten by Lappas for victory.

Results Portaria Hillclimb 2017

The Greek Hillclimb Championship continued with the Portaria Hillclimb. Marios Iliopoulos was already certain of the Group FS title. Still the Ford Fiesta WRC pilot contested the Portaria Hillclimb, set fastest time of the weekend and scored another great victory. Konstantinos Lazaridis and Panagiotis Parthenis had to be satisfied with second and third respectively.

For the fourth consecutive time Leonidas Kyrkos was victorious in Group A. He is now almost certain of the Group A championship. In the second race Andreas Ntofis managed to pass Michael Euthymiou for the runner-up spot. Panagiotis Lioris would have challenged the leaders but retired his Ford Escort WRC with mechanical problems. At Portaria Spyros Vorgias became certain of the Group A -2 litre championship.

Group N was dominated by Mitsubishi Lancers. Ioannis Potouridis and Konstantinos Kakos challenged for victory but it was Stamatios Katsimis who managed to take the winner’s trophy home.

Group E saw a sensational victory for Pantelis Vasileiadis. With his little Citroën AX Vasileiadis managed to beat a big field of more powerful cars. Some luck came into it too as Georgios Kechagias had a spin and lost a lot of time.

Results Omalos Hillclimb 2017

After a two mont summer break the Greek Hillclimb Championship continued this weekend with the Omalos Hillclimb. Marios Iliopoulos was again the quickest driver in his Ford Fiesta WRC.

Group A was the most competitive class in Omalos with 23 drivers. The Kyrkos Racing Team with drivers Leonidas and Panagiotis Kyrkos proved to be slightly quicker than the competition. The uncle, Leonidas, was quickest in the first race but his nephew Panagiotis was the quickest in the second. On aggregate Leonidas was awarded the win but his lead was just .3 seconds. Michalis Euthymiou was very close to the leaders but had to settle for third in class.

Group N was for Konstantinos Kakos while Giorgos Katsaros was the strongest in the historics.
